    Oil feed pipe in house is "microbore" size (10mm).
    Recommendations for a clamp to use for bonding as a standard 951 clip won't sit properly on the pipe

    Agreed that some won't 'sit properly' as there are some ***** ones around. There are, however, some that have a larger metal back to the clamp itself in the form of a square shape that allows you to fit them the smaller diameter pipes.

    Get the heating engineer to fit an isolator in line which means you don't need to bond the oil service. Especially in the case of old metal tanks, they are usually sat on a nice "insulated" slab and hence connecting a bond to them means in the event of a fault, the entire tank could potentially become live.
